This moderately challenging hike to one of the area’s tallest peaks feels like it belongs in the Texas Hill Country. It can be surprisingly secluded given its central location in the Dallas– Fort Worth Metroplex. Unlike other area trails, which have little change in elevation, this one moves up and down like a roller coaster, offering thrilling views of Joe Pool Lake to the west and a calming moment or two by a cattail pond before winding back up to the trailhead.

Great local place to train for longer backcountry trips. Lots of different difficulty levels, even one for wheelchairs.
